2. Meeting all applicable requirements of the Tennessee Department of Health.
3. Meeting all applicable requirements of the City of Knoxville Department of Engineering and City of Knoxville Fire Department.

5. Installing a 6-ft tall fence in approximately the same location as shown on the site plan near the Oakbank Lane frontage of the property. If the fence is required to be an "open fence" because it is located in a corner side yard, evergreen landscaping with a minimum mature height of 6 feet tall must be installed between the fence and Oakbank Lane to visually screen the rear yard, and a landscape plan must be provided to Planning staff for review and approval before building permits issued for the additions to the building. The landscaping must meet the requirements of Article 12.3 (Selection, Installation and Maintenance) and Article 12.4 (Landscape Design Standards) of the City of Knoxville Zoning Ordinance.
6. Showing the blue-line stream that runs along the eastern property line on the plans submitted for permitting and providing the stream buffers as required by the City of Knoxville Engineering and Public Works.
7. The driveway connection to Oakbank Lane shall be gated and for exiting service vehicles only, with the exception of access for emergency vehicles that can also use it as an entrance if needed. The gate must automatically close after a vehicle exits the site.

With the conditions noted, this plan meets the requirements for approval in the O (Office) District and the criteria for approval of a special use.
